CUPPETT’S COVERED BRIDGE
CUPPETT COVERED BRIDGE
“Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.”
I find one of the joys of blogging is to have someone recognized my photos and respond with a personal story behind the photo.
Such was the case when I did a post about the covered bridges of Bedford County in Pennsylvania last October.
To my surprise Carol Cuppett wrote me in appreciation for posting the Cuppett Covered Bridge which has been in her family for decades.
Carol and husband Jim
Jim’s cousin still owns the Cuppett Brothers Farm and sells his corn, potatoes, tomatoes, etc.
Carol suggested If traveling by car you must drive up Cuppett Road to the top of the Ridge. The Ridge Road is lined with apple and peach orchards and is a beautiful drive in the early spring when the trees are covered with blossoms and the late summer when they are covered with apples.

Carol shared some memories of her son giving his future wife her engagement ring at the bridge, and how her mother-in-law told them that somewhere on the bridge are the initials that her father-in-law carved to show his love for her
Carol also shared two pictures of her 2 youngest grandchildren taken in 2008 at the bridge.

Sharing a history of a place gives it greater value and appreciation for its existence. Thank you Carol for sharing with us some of your memories of Cuppett Covered Bridge.
